The great lie of detective fiction is that the world makes sense: there are no coincidences; criminal motives are simple and decipherable; every clue is a step along the path to resolution. Sherlock Holmes is no match for the real world but fortunately, Trike Augustine is, at least most of the time. Some crimes are just too stupid, even for Trike, and this might be one of them. This is a hilariously weird and philosophical detective novel by Porter Square Books’ own debut novelist—a talented new voice, whose next offering I’m already looking forward to reading!
Alexander— From AN EXAGGERATED MURDER
“If Sherlock Holmes and Ignatius J. Reilly had a baby, that child would be Trike Augustine, private investigator. Rude, slobby, irritatingly brilliant, quick-witted -- that's Trike. With the help of his saner, more reasonable employees, Trike has been tasked with finding a missing billionaire, but will the stupid clues stump the smart man, or will Trike manage to keep himself and his associates out of harm's way and solve the case before it's too late? An Exaggerated Murder is a fantastic, funny, smart debut, and I eagerly await more from Cook.”
